Paint Party Friday - Heart with wings

Happy Paint Party Friday everyone! This fun weekly event is hosted by Eva and Kristin.

This week I worked on a variety of things, but what I'm showing is this small 3x3 canvas. I painted this with acrylics, no intention in mind initially.

I also just finished this little heart, by tinting and adding the wings, with the intent to place on a canvas, but hadn't determined what background. 

And decided to see if they go together. Hmmm... The canvas should be larger, and I'm unsure the colors go well. But it's given me ideas, and that's the name of the game. 

For my birthday, I've treated myself to the "The Art of Moving Forward" in Anacortes, where I'll be this weekend learning all kinds of information about how to have a successful art business. I'll be by to visit you all as soon as I can when I'm back. In the meantime, have a fabulous weekend! 


And hey, if you have time, check out the Treasury I just created on Etsy for a Team Challenge "In the Woods".

I so much like the 3x3 on it's own adding the heart brought depth and a wonder to the painting. This is fabulous!!

The heart and canvas were meant for one another. Enjoy your weekend and may your art business bring you joy, because if it doesn't delight your heart, it matters not whether it flourishes.

I think we have some similarities in our process. I often start something with no clear idea of where I'm headed. It's fun to see how things come together. Have fun in Anacortes. The weather is supposed to be great this weekend. That workshops sounds good. I'll have to look into it. Cheers!
